Latin Teaching Experience
What better way to sum up my approach to teaching Latin than a video of my students singing "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen in Latin? Here's a video where I describe the experience of being in Rome as a Latin teacher:
This video is joint property of Educational Seminars and Elliott Goodman.
Educational Seminars, my sponsor to attend the American Academy in Rome's Classical Summer School, prepared the video above with program alumni to advertise the program. (Unfortunately, Congress canceled the funding for this program shortly after!) I took all the still photographs used in the video. It should give you a small picture of what is important to me in teaching about ancient Roman culture and civilization in the context of Latin language instruction.
From 2007-2012, I taught Latin at an independent college prep school outside of Los Angeles. Here you will find artifacts from that experience as well as other ways that I strive to serve the community of Latin lovers in the United States.
